dc.description.abstractThe fractionally charged quasiparticles appearing in the \(\frac{5}{2}\) fractional quantum Hall plateau are predicted to have an extra nonlocal degree of freedom, known as topological charge. We show how this topological charge can block the tunneling of these particles, and how such topological blockade can be used to read out their topological charge. We argue that the short time scale required for this measurement is favorable for the detection of the non-Abelian anyonic statistics of the quasiparticles. We also show how topological blockade can be used to measure braiding statistics, and to couple a topological qubit with a conventional one.en_US
